TED Talk: Nationalism vs. Globalism: the New Political Divide

Wednesday August 9, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


How do we make sense of today’s political divisions? In a wide-ranging conversation full of insight, historian Yuval Harari places our current turmoil in a broader context, against the ongoing disruption of our technology, climate, media — even our notion of what humanity is for. This is the first of a series of TED Dialogues, seeking a thoughtful response to escalating political divisiveness. Make time (just over an hour) for this fascinating discussion between Harari and TED curator Chris Anderson.  Sign Up Today!

Hiking the Camino de Santiago

Wednesday June 14, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


Theresa Fersch did not consider herself an adventurer before her trip; yet somehow this smaller-than-average but larger-than-life woman, at the age of 34, found herself in the middle of rural Spain, having the adventure of a lifetime. Sunrise in Spain shares Theresa’s epistolary account of the most exciting moments of her journey across the 500-mile Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France, over the Pyrenees Mountains, and across Spain to the famous cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.
